Looking for Dereel Orchids

Field Nats Bill and Paul, visited several sites at Dereel on Tuesday – the Dereel Stone reserve,  Swanson Road and Bliss Road reserve (east side). Unfortunately there are several gorse plants, some gladiolus and at least one plant of boneseed along the northern section.

There was little out in flower at the Stone reserve, only two wattle species – Acacia paradoxa and A. myrtifolia and leaves and buds of helmet and mayfly orchids.

The other two sites had good flowering examples of two orchid species plus flowers of nodding and trim greenhood orchids.
